Leadership Development Ministry Team



We are pleased to offer financial assistance to members of our congregations who are pursuing ordained ministry in the Christian Reformed Church.

This is a high priority for us. A major way we develop students is by providing educational grants to those who are pursing an academic ministry degree in a seminary.

We partner with students by assisting with tuition and books so that their ministry training is possible.

Wondering if you might qualify? Please go through the following steps:

  • Step One

  • STEP TWO
